Raw shelled Hazelnuts

Hazelnuts are “oilseed” fruits of the hazel tree, that belongs to the Corilus Avellana family. Hazelnuts are contained in a wooden pericarp. Here in Italy the most renowned types are La Tonda Gentile (the Gentile Round) and La Tonda di Giffoni (the Giffoni’s Round).

Toasted hazelnuts are obtained by shelling and throwing away the wooden pericarp and then they get dried out, peeled and toasted in the oven for a couple minutes – until they slightly tan. These are mainly used in the confectionery industry due to their exquisite taste. Toasted hazelnuts can be used for making desserts, ice cream, nougat and confectionery in general. Furthermore they can be used to garnish desserts and they can even be combined with salty foods.

These seeds are rich in polyunsaturates ( omega 3 and omega 6) that help lowering blood cholesterol and also contain fibers and a high quantity of vitamin E, B6, Folates and Thiamine and mineral salts as Copper, Iron, Manganese and Calcium.
